Arduino And Flash Tutorials. All Of A Sudden.Arduino And Flash Tutorials. All Of A Sudden.Arduino And Flash Tutorials. All Of A Sudden.

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

If you (like me) get to know the term “software tutorial” related to some professional products like the Adobe Suite, you are going to be quite amazed in seeing Kevin Hoyt introducing Arduino as the Physical counterpart of that high-level, client-friendly, closed-source, wonderful software which is Adobe Flash.

[...] If you like me spend a lot of time -everyday- in front of the computer, and that’s just great..don’t get me wrong…Adobe Developers built some of the collest apps out there…but…what happens when you close your laptop and walk away? For most part web developer just live there in the Ether, you’ve got nothing really to show from your hard day of work…but, that bothers me, so I want to kind of escape the bounds of the computer, and do something more…[...]

This is kind of a deep witnessing. You to judge what that really means.

The future of Arduino

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Chris Anderson met Gianluca and Massimo last week. He wrote a wonderful post full of pictures about the future of Arduino (see alco Arduino Blog) and the arduino PCB production.

A week ago I spent a day with the Arduino team in and around Milan (production lead Gianluca Martino at left above, with raw Arduino PCBs coming off the fab). Here’s a quick report.

First, we talked a lot about the Punto Uno (“Version 1.0″) release. It’s kinda incredible that Arduino is still described as Alpha software and stuck in decimal versions after all these years. Well, no more. In September, it will finally be released in a 1.0 version.

In italian, Punto and Uno is two name of different FIAT cars ;). He obviously means Uno Punto Zero, which is 1.0.

1st Arduino ever

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

Some interesting reports of the Opening Hardware workshop @ eyebeam in NYC with the most influential people in open source hardware including Limor Fried, Bunnie Huang (Chumby), and the Arduino team. In the first picture you can see the first Arduino ever brought by Massimo Banzi.

Celebrate.

Arduino FIO presented at Uno Punto Zero

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Well. For Arduino enthusiasts everything is happening in New York right now.  During this OpenHardware Meeting Shigeru Kobayashi from IAMAS, presented his Arduino FIO board that he developed together with Sparkfun.

Check some other pictures on Sparkfun webStore.

LEDs invade coffee table crevice (and Code)

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

?Incredible 6144 led table controlled by the Arduino (!!!). With 19 of his 20 I/O pins… check this incredible experimental ikea mod from [Tobis]  (and check the code).

Arduino All Stars – The Complete IR Library for Arduino

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Some time ago Ken Shirriff posted on his blog a nice e useful library, lately moved to GitHub: The InfraRed Arduino Library.
Since then you can decode Sony, Nec, RC5 and RC6 , and even raw codes, using them to store unusual commands from unusual protocols. (The code can be downloaded from IRhashcode.pde. The sample application prints the “real” decoded value and the hash value. The “real” value will only work for supported protocols (Sony, RC5, RC6, NEC), but the hash value should work for almost any remote control.)

This is, by farm the most interesting Arduino library around.
Build your own commander!
TIP: remember to follow TV-B-Gone instructions for powering the IR led)
